LG unveiled a new accessory in its home market – Pocket Photo printer. The small device is about the size of the LG Optimus Vu only thicker, measuring 2.8×4.7×0.9 inches. Leveraging heat-activated Zink paper, the Pocket Photo makes 2- x 3-inch prints without relying on conventional ink (though you will have to buy that special paper from time to time).
LG’s printer connects to Android-based smartphones via Bluetooth and/or NFC and a special app that allows users to tweak photos, apply filters, add QR codes and messages.
The LG Pocket Photo will soon be available in South Korea in orange, pink and silver accents for $169. No word whether it will be available in the Western hemisphere, as well.
